Helmet Shape Design
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:26:23 pm »
Based on years of cogitation, I think helmets should be flat on top. That way, you could put it down on the ground upside down, gloves wouldn't fall out, and you could easily pick it up with the chin strap.

So all you helmet manufacturers, this idea is now out there, no patents to worry about. Go for it.

Great idea! But it's been thought up before ... and benevolent mod Jim probably likes it:

Flat on top.  And you can flip it over and make a nice stew on those cold winter days.  Why don't I have one of these?
